, was in power in the 90s when benjamin netanyahu was primeman, and there -- prime minister, and there was a lot of frustration there which i used to explain the context in which people are operating. hillary clinton wasn't in the policymaking aspect of the white house back in the '9s but she remembers what the interactions were like. rahm emanuel is back. he was by bill clinton's side, certainly an adviser, and now he is there with president obama, and it sort of informs a little bit of the mood of needing to be bullish and needing to be strong when it comes to dealing with benjamin netanyahu, because everybody has been there before. i had american officials tell me benjamin netanyahu thinks he can wait this out until we leave, but we're going to be here longer than him. so we can just try to move the ball forward a little bit here and there until he is edged out of the political scene because that's just the nature of politics in israel. but benjamin netanyahu has just been re-elected. so there were a series of miscalculations. but i think that what i would like to remind people of is that the

benjamin netanyahu in jerusalem on wednesday. the president has often been criticized for his distance relationship with the israeli leader but many see this visit as a chance to make things better. much is at stake as israel grapples with a nuclear iran and a lagging peace process. joining me, aaron david miller, vice president of woodrow wilson international center for scholars and a former middle east advisor to democratic and republican secretaries state. here in new york, steven cook of the council on foreign relations. i'm pleased to have both of them back on this program. let me begin with you steven what's the hope of this trip? >> well, the hope is at least officially for the president to reset his relationship with the israeli leader and the israeli people. as you pointed out. there's been some difficulty in the relationship between the leaders. there's been rhetoric the way in which the president has approached the u.s. relationship with israel. of course beyond this rhetoric israeli leaders from the israeli ambassador to the united states to the now former minister of the d
, the fact is that benjamin netanyahu next year will be the longest surviving israeli prime minister ever. he's the only prime minister that has won back-to-back elections sequentially and the fact is he's challenged now by two upstarts. lapid and bennett, both of whom are not focused in the main on foreign policy and security issues but on social and economic ones so it's a paradox, in order to maintain his relevance as a foreign policy national security guy-- which is his strong suit-- the fact is he does need a better relationship with obama because obama holds the key on that front, certainly on iran. >> reporter: speaking of iran-- and i'll come back to that relationship-- is what the president saided in an interview with israeli television, will that comfort israelis? >> it certainly should comfort israelis. after all, the record suggests that the administration has worked very, very hard on the iranian challenge and the president has said that take my word, we're not interested in containing iran, we're interested in preventing iran from developing nuclear technology. i think it should
in jerusalem this afternoon. he spoke alongside benjamin netanyahu. just a day after both the syrian regime and the syrian rebels accused each other of deploying chemical weapons. now, so far u.s. officials say they have no evidence that those accusations are true on either side. but president obama says he is deeply skeptical that of any claim that the opposition rebels used chemical weapons at all. he did not say the same of the syrian regime. we have team fox cor-j tonight. first our chief white house correspondent ed henry who is traveling with the president in israel. it was notable today that the president seemed to walk right up to the line of threatening military action. >> shep, he certainly did, because the stakes are enormous tonight. all the way there in new york where you are. the u.n. security council tonight behind closed doors, ambassadors from around the world, went behind closed doors to discuss the syrian chemical weapons situation. as you noted, it also dominated here in jerusalem. the press conference the president had with the israeli prime minister. he made very clear
will revisit with prime minister of israel benjamin netanyahu a couple days from now as they try to begin that new conversation in earnest. just a short time ago on this his second day here in israel, the president did a little of cultural stops, going to israel museum where he saw what are referred to as the dead sea scrolls. these are ancient hebrew text that sort of highlight the connection between the jewish people and this land here. the state of israel. but during the conversation with reporters yesterday, the president once again showed that he has israel's back. that's the exact language that he used on the topic of iran. he said that he will do whatever is necessary to prevent iran from getting its hands on nuclear weapons. he referred to them as the world's worst weapons. >> all right, peter alexander, thank you. >>> all day long, stay with nbc for complete coverage of president obama's historic trip to the middle east. >>> a new report this morning is sounding the alarm on the intelligence community. this morning's "washington post" claims u.s. spy agencies are dropping the bal
smiles, so much hand holding practically between president obama and benjamin netanyahu. as we are waiting this press conference between president obama and president mahmoud abbas, what are you looking for in terms of how they relate to each other? >> reporter: a couple of key questions. does the president of the united states lay out any timetable for his effort to resume peace process? i expect the answer to that is no. he will say there's more foundation building. what does president abbas say about his willingness to come back to the table? right now he says he will only come back if israel meets certain conditions, chief among them, stop iping settlement construction in the west bank. construction is under way. and that construction has accelerated because president netanyahu was made at the united nations for recognizing, essentially, a palestinian state. that is a poke in the eye of the palestinians. it's also a poke in the eye, by the way, at the president of the united states, who has urged president netanyahu not to do that. it was very interesting yesterday. the pre
and the fact that america has their back and to repair his relationship with prime minister benjamin netanyahu which has really been rocky as you know. the joke in the press corps it was operation dessert shamooz. jon: he start of off to the by going to muslim world to reset relations there. >> that is fine to make a trip like that. he never visited israel. he learn ad lesson from the first term. i infer that from the speech. you can't ask your friends to make peace with youred very serries -- adversaries if your friends don't trust you. if the friends don't know america will be there for them you can't ask for peace. that is the problem in the first term. he is starting the second term out by telling the israelis i get it. you can count on me. now you take risks for peace. whether that happens or not i think is doubtful but at least he is trying to set the stage for that. jon: much has been made of the thorny relationship he had with benjamin netanyahu up till now, the israeli prime minister. did that get smathed over as a result of the words? >> certainly the atmospherics looked a lot better

. personally with benjamin netanyahu, in a bigger sense with the whole nation and he seemed to tilt away from the palestinians and toward the israelis, he's no longer going to insist that israel stop the creation, or the construction of settlements as a pre-condition to peace talks. so, you know, it may be a b, b-plus, no great accomplishment, but certainly an okay trip. >> clayton: to elaborate on that point, was this an overtly pro-israel trip? pressure on syria, pressure on iran standing with israel or did you see it differently? >> in terms of syria and iran shall the president has been opposed to those two regimes for a long time, but in terms of where he comes down on the issues separating the israelis and palestinians, he's tilted as opposed to the first term, towards the palestinians and israelis. in a personal sense, it was a charm offensive between himself and benjamin netanyahu. and the fact he was going to get him there to the prime minister and the aid on the ship that was trying to break the israeli blockade three years ago, that was a significant event. >> jesse: and chris, you
